    Description

    From Tayari Jones, author of the New York Times best seller and Oprah’s Book Club pick An American Marriage, comes an intimate, powerful story of two sisters.   

    Identical twins Amelia and Camelia Hall were born with the same face, and that’s about it: By the time the girls were through school, the matching set of names could no longer contain them. Now there’s Cam, whose contrarian streak led her to a career in law, and Lia, who followed more closely in her parents’ footsteps with her dermatology practice and married-with-children lifestyle in Atlanta’s Glenwood Park.   

    But the bond between the sisters is deep and unshakable - Cam serves as the maid of honor on Lia’s wedding day and as her attorney 15 years later, when Lia’s life and the lives of her two teenage daughters are rocked by divorce. And two years after her separation, the dust is finally starting to settle. But in the hazy glow of their first years of marriage, Lia gifted her then-husband a precious, irreplaceable family heirloom, and she decides that now, she must do whatever she can to get it back, starting with breaking and entering.   

    In Half Light, Jones explores the complex, profound bond of family, both the family we’re born with and the family we choose, against the vibrant backdrop of present-day Atlanta.

    Half Light

    I don't normally listen to this type of book, but I really enjoyed it. There was so much meaning behind the story. I think it could have been a little longer, just to explain more, but was good. The narration was very good.

    Nice little bonding story between twin sisters

    Nice little story of bonding between twin sisters Camelia (Cam) and Amelia (Lia) by Tayari Jones. Nice narration by Bahni Turpin. The story revolves around the painting of the twins' mother which they both tresure beyond anything, while slightly touching their childhood, careers, their family bonding and their bonding over the years as sisters. Nice audiobook. A feel good short story.

    BEAUTIFULLY DONE

    This story was so beautifully done. I only wish it was longer. The dynamic between the sisters was well developed and inspired. Made me wish I was a twin.

    A great short about reconciling to oneself

    Love the short story. I really like the performance as well. I would love to hear the expanded version of this story.

    Enjoyable short story with great narration.

    A well-written little story to listen to while doing chores around the house or during a commute. Well paced with interesting characters. It keeps you engaged throughout to see what happens.

    If the summary sounds interesting to you, give this one a listen.

    I don’t get the hype

    I just don’t get all the great reviews on this book. I just could t get into it. I fell asleep toward the end. Too much hype not enough storyline for me. Just a lot of endless uninteresting self talk. Sorry.

    An Audible narrated by Bahni Turpin draws me!

    This story was poignant and funny. I loved the fact that it was about upper middle class African Americans with every man problems.

    Turpin does phenomenal job of making each character come to life. I could even see the pine trees and foliage of north Atlanta as she read.

    Jones is quick witted and a smart writer. The characters are well developed and the story left me wondering about Amelia and Cam’s mother’s story—I hope to see a prologue story to bring this season in a family’s life full circle.

    This was included in my membership; but I would have easily paid for this as if it were a novel. I’m fact, I immediately searched for a few Tayari Jones novels that I have not read.

    Yeah, I may be an uber-fan.

    Enjoyable

    This was an interesting short audible original. I enjoyed An American Marriage, so I was anxious to try this; the characters were interesting and the story was concise and well told. The narration was also very good.
